Hip & Groin Injections

Guided injections into the hip joint using local anesthetic can be used to aid in the diagnoses of a variety of hip and groin pain related pain. The use of steroid and hyaluronic acid can help with reduction in pain and stiffness in cases of osteoarthritis.

Do I need a Hip injection?

If the exact cause of your hip pain is unclear, a guided injection of anaesthetic directly into the joint can help to confirm or deny if the joint itself is at the root of the pain.

In confirmed cases of true hip joint pain, including arthritis and synovitis, injecting steroids and hyaluronic acid can help to reduce pain and inflammation and improve function.

What to expect at my hip injection appointment?

Be sure to arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time, giving you time to fill out a new patient form.

At your initial consultation, the doctor will take time to understand your symptoms and undertake a thorough assessment to ensure the injection is right for you. It is important to let the doctor know of any known allergies, such as plasters and to inform us if you are pregnant. Please also let the doctor know if you have any medical conditions and take any regular medications including blood thinning medications. This is also a great opportunity to ask the doctor any questions you may have about the procedure.

Prior to your procedure, eat and drink as normal and take any regular medication as usual (unless advised otherwise by the doctor). Please come to your appointment wearing loose, comfortable clothing.

How long might my hip injection take to work?
Many people can experience relief within as little as 48 hours. Generally speaking, patients report 80% of the improvement from the injection within 2 weeks. The effects of the injection tend to last for at least 3 months, often much much longer when combined with a thorough rehab plan!
Does my hip injection need to be guided?
Many of the joint, tendon and ligament injections of the peripheral skeleton (not in the spine) are safe and effective when performed without or without fluoroscope or ultrasound guidance. The benefit of having the injection guided is that you can be sure the injectate is delivered to the intended place. We have however been administering non-guided injections for many years safely and very effectively too.
Who administers the injections at the Back and Body Clinic?
All of our injections are carried out by experienced consultant doctors or extended scope physiotherapists.
